I started the the Knights of Nerdvana shortly after my time on King of the Nerds. At first I started to interact with fans of the show through the #NerdArmy. I teamed up with a small group of dedicated fans that quickly became friends and we worked together to use social media to campaign for a 3rd season of King of the Nerds. I mobilized fans to support a 3rd season by daily posts using the hashtag and creating movie poster parodies that reflected our nerdy interests. I also started to host weekly Google hangouts called #NerdArmy Briefings to update the fans on the casting news and updates on our endeavors. After the show was picked up for another season I was attached to my crew of nerdy pals and felt that I was in a position where I could give back to everyone. I decided to build the site and continue the #NerdArmy on social media. Not as a way to promote myself, but as a way offer a place for people to feel like they were a part of something. They can join like minded nerds around the virtual round table.
In order to build the site I teamed up with nerds from throughout the nerd kingdom and called on their expertise and experience. Together we created the Knights of Nerdvana with the goal of providing a needed service to their fellow nerds: a haven that would welcome nerds of all fandoms and allow them to nerd out and share their passions. I continue to host weekly hangouts, we select a young nerd every month to be our Squire of the Month. We have nerds who want to try their hand at podcasting and blogging and I use my site as a platform for them to give it a try and to contribute to site. I use the KON site to try new forms social media support for the site and even expand my own knowledge of the nerd world with our monthly Round Table Challenges.
